The Archer® FusionPlex Pan-Heme panel is an Anchored Multiplex PCR (AMP™)-based next-generation sequencing (NGS) test to detect and identify fusions, point mutations and expression levels from ribonucleic acid (RNA) input. The panel encompasses all targets in the FusionPlex heme panels, amounting to over 199 genes relating to lymphoid and myeloid malignancies. By using gene-specific primers to amplify into molecular barcodes ligated onto the cDNA fragment ends, both known and novel fusions can be identified.

Gene Targets


Fusion, splicing or exon-skipping


  • Fusions involving BCR and TCR loci, including IGH, IGL and IGK, are targeted for expression and may not be explicitly called as a fusion because these often do not result in chimeric transcripts
  • Targets are listed for primary purpose but may detect other mutation types
  • ABC and GCB DLBCL signature genes are targeted for expression. An experimental classification tool for ABC/GCB differentiation is available in Archer Analysis
